How secure is SubVersion at an ISP?

I have a server running SubVersion. But am having a terrible time getting a port open on ComCast, and am considering using a hosted version of SubVersion.

How secure is that? Can't anyone at the ISP get my source code?

Curious...

If you don't use SSL with your subversion server, it can be somewhat unsecure. But if you activate it, then you don't have to worry.

There's a manual to activate SSL:

Is the source code encrypted on the disk? Or could an employee of the ISP open the file?

I guess when I tried looking into the code on my SubVersion I found it was encrypted.

Am I right about that?

It is encrypted on the disk, but if you want to make sure you can use another method of encrypt your files.

For example, under windows XP:
